    Blackspire makes the Duelie,
    E-13 (Evil) makes the DRS,
    and MRP makes the LRP.

    Of the three, I prefer the E-13. The clear lexan bash quard is hot, and the shifting is smooth and silent.

    I thought Mr. Dirt had a double, but couldn't find it on their website.

    And as I have been running MRP's, I'd go with the LRP. Granted they are all top notch, and it boils down to a matter of what you like best.

    Definitely not to bash (pun intended) the other two. I just like the looks of the Evil (E-13) better. Now, if you combine the Blackspire with their cranks! That's a hot looking set-up!

    It boils down to looks and cost, because they all work well!

    I ordered an Evil DRS...took a look at a couple of others but heard several complaints about the bashgaurd of the MRP.
